Re: loadings associated with sea conditions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


For shipping large modules for Alaska North Slope installation we would get design charts from the barge supplier which would give the anticipated acceleration for pitch, roll, and yaw.  In many cases these would exceed the land based seismic accelerations.  See if the ship owner has this type of information.

I have been given a project to consider that involves building a structure to be installed on a ship.  I am looking for some guidance from those of you who are familiar with this type of work.  Perhaps this would be beyond my capabilities and I will ultimately have to decline the work, but I would at least like to look into it to see what is involved before I do so.  This may be too obscure for the general list so if any of you would like to respond in private to kpeoples(--nospam--at) please feel free to do so.
